[Right Scoop] Senator Dianne Feinstein, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee with a top-secret clearance, had a Chinese spy working for her for twenty years in a just released report.
Here’s more from CBS San Francisco:
New details emerged Wednesday about how a mole for the government of communist China managed to stay by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s side for nearly 20 years.
It happened five years ago, but additional information is just surfacing about how the Bay Area senator’s office was infiltrated by a Chinese spy. On Wednesday, the San Francisco Chronicle uncovered additional details in a column written by reporters Phil Matier and Andy Ross.
The column revealed that the Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and was a liaison to the Asian-American community. He even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator.
Feinstein ‐ who was Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time ‐ was reportedly mortified when the FBI told her she’d be infiltrated. Investigators reportedly concluded the driver hadn’t leaked anything of substance and Feinstein forced him to retire.
So apparently he wasn’t a very good spy if he never got access to anything of substance. Substandard spy assigned to substandard Senator ?
The FBI believes he worked for her because she was on the Senate Intelligence Committee:
Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein (D, Calif.) made waves Tuesday when she publicly accused the Central Intelligence Agency of spying on Senate computers in an alleged attempt to thwart her committee's investigation into Bush era interrogation and detention practices. The senator even suggested that the agency had violated the Constitution and federal law.

[Breitbart] The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a series of heavy redacted documents Friday revealing almost nothing about its relationship with former British intelligence agent and Trump "pee" dossier author Christopher Steele.
The 71 pages of FBI documents, released in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by Judicial Watch, corroborate previous reports indicating Steele was a"Confidential Human Source" (CHS) for the bureau, though the forms themselves do not explicitly name him.
The documents confirm the FBI severed ties with the former British intelligence agent following an unauthorized media disclosure.
The first page of the FBI packet, an FD-1040a form, reveals the bureau concluded Steele was "not suitable" to function as an informant and sent a "deactivation" notice to him. Steele "acknowledged receipt" about the bureau’s move to end their relationship on November 1, 2016 ‐ just days before the U.S. presidential election. The apparent cause, as stated in both the first and the penultimate documents, reads: "CHS confirmed to an outside third party that CHS has a confidential relationship with the FBI."
"[H]andling agent advised CHS that the nature of the relationship between the FBI and CHS would change completely and that it was unlikely that the FBI would continue a relationship with the CHS," the document reads. "Additionally, handling agent advised that CHS was not to operate to obtain any intelligence on behalf of the FBI."
The final document says Steele was "verbally admonished" for an unspecified cause.
Aside from these three forms, virtually every other page is blanked out entirely. The FBI redacts information regarding their payment agreements, key dates of remittance, and the duration of Steele’s relationship with the Bureau.
The campaign of Scott Wallace, the Democratic candidate in PA-01, took a big hit in May 2018, just after he won the primary, when it was revealed that the Wallace Foundation, which he headed, funded the worst-of-the-worst anti-Israel pro-BDS groups.
...Wallace has for many years been at the helm of the Wallace Global Fund, his family’s nonprofit foundation, which has given more than $7 million in the last two decades to groups that advocate state-sponsored population control, including China-style limits on the number of children families are allowed to have.
One of these outfits, Population Connected, founded as Zero Population Growth in 1968, had this to say in a lovely brochure for new members:
We advocate: 1. That no responsible family should have more than two children. Any family wanting to care for more than two children should adopt further children. Adopting children does not increase the population. 2. All methods of birth control, including legalized abortion, should be freely available ‐ and at no cost in poverty cases. 3. Irresponsible people who have more than two children should be taxed to the hilt for the privilege of irresponsible breeding. [Population Connected]
"Irresponsible breeding!" Is it just me, or there is a common thread here?
In a landmark First Amendment decision, the Supreme Court ruled earlier this summer in Janus v. AFSCME that states cannot require public employees to pay "agency fees" to unions. Prior to the decision, in 22 states, public employees who chose not to join a union could still be required to pay these fees ‐ somewhat less than full dues ‐ for union services. Some have suggested that unions might temper their left-wing politics in response to the decision, in the hopes of wooing potential members put off by union politics.
For unions, the stakes could hardly be higher. Kate Walsh, president of the National Council on Teacher Quality, warns that surveys show "many [teachers] see dues as too high" and "political activity as too leftist"; she also notes that "only half of all teachers voted for Hillary Clinton." Internal documents from the National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest teachers’ union, anticipate that the union will lose a whopping 300,000 members. Things look even bleaker for the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the nation’s other major teachers’ union, which has 15 of its 22 largest state affiliates in former agency-fee states ‐ and already had fewer than half its members paying full dues.
By happenstance, both unions held their big national conventions in July, providing a chance to scour the tea leaves for subtle hints as to how the unions might woo reluctant members, especially the hefty share who take issue with the leftist bent that has characterized the unions in recent decades.
...It turns out that the tea leaves weren’t that hard to read, after all. At the NEA’s annual convention and representative assembly in Minneapolis, things kicked off on day one with Parkland survivor and woke gun-control activist David Hogg joining NEA president Lily Eskelsen García on stage to exhort the cheering throng, "There’s nothing more powerful in America than a pissed-off teacher." The NEA also made time to award its Human and Civil Rights Award ‐ given to those who have "demonstrated remarkable courage and conviction to stand up for racial and social justice" ‐ to recipients including First Lady Michelle Obama and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The NEA adopted 122 total New Business Items, including commitments to promote the Black Lives Matter Week of Action (including supporting BLM’s demand that "ethnic studies be taught in pre-K-12 schools"), to support "a strategy postponing confirmation of a Supreme Court justice until after the mid-term election," and to encourage teachers to assign readings that "describe and deconstruct the systemic proliferation of a White supremacy culture and its constituent elements of White privilege and institutional racism." The NEA also promised to respond "in support of and in solidarity with immigrant families who are separated, incarcerated, or refused their legal right to request asylum due to the heartless, racist, and discriminatory zero-tolerance policies of the Trump administration."
NEA is a union which any set of idiots is free to have and belong to. Dept. of Education and National Endowment for the Arts? Shut 'em down...

^ My bad - I was thinking about the Dept. of Education, and how it was created (Carter agreed to do that in exchange for the NEA's support for him in the 1976 election). That's how I first got interested in politics.
So the non-political teachers will stop paying fees, school districts will stop automatically withholding fees for them to funnel directly to the unions, and the rump membership will make their significantly reduced funding work much harder to produce political results... generating more ill will from potential members who see them ignoring local contract negotiations to purchase participation in the political arena.
A double win for the anti-unionists — in both the short- and mid-term.
[Free Beacon] New Jersey senator Cory Booker (D.) was pictured on Friday afternoon at the liberal Netroots Nation conference holding a sign calling for the removal of security borders in Israel, a policy proposal from a radical anti-Israel group with financial ties to terrorist groups.
Booker, standing next to radical activists from the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, is holding a sign that says, "From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go," a slogan used by the group in its call for the removal of Israeli security barriers used to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks.
The picture of Booker was posted by the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a radical activist group that supports anti-Israel campaigns such as the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement and was recently found to be financially tied to designated terrorist groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
"Excited to be here at Netroots Nation talking with progressives like Sen. Cory Booker about our shared commitment to freedom, justice, and equality for all people," the group wrote.
Booker's senate office did not initially respond to an inquiry on the picture and whether he believes security barriers that prevent terrorists based in the West Bank and Gaza Strip from entering Israel should be removed, but after publication sent a statement claiming the New Jersey senator didn't know what was written on the sign he was holding.
